The SPR Research and Education Foundation Board of Directors announces that the Jack Haller Award for Excellence in Pediatric Radiology Education has been renamed. As of 2019, the award is deemed:
The Jack O. Haller-Thomas L. Slovis Award for Excellence
in Pediatric Radiology Education
As background, in 2004 Jack Haller passed away and his friend Tom Slovis asked the SPR Foundation Board of Directors to establish an award in Jack’s memory to recognize excellence in pediatric radiology education. The Foundation Board approved the request and Tom seeded the fund with the inaugural donation of $10,000. Tom continued to support the Haller fund in subsequent years.
We hope you agree that it is fitting that the award that celebrates excellence in pediatric radiology education, also through this renaming, now also celebrates the lasting impact of friendship and goodwill.
